Graham Geraghty Medals Stolen

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Just wish to express my support to Graham on this and to wish that he gets those medals back.

A lot of people didn't like him when he played but he was a class act who won those medals fair and square and even suffered concussion when representing Ireland.

Suppose at least he got the chance to win those medals and there is a chance he will hopefully get them back. However, plenty in Leinster have been robbed of the chance of a medal this last couple of decades by the GAA and their money driven agenda.... :-)

Looks after himself; I'd say he could still play a half in a club game. The ratbags who did this won;t even know what they are and they won't be reading normal media sources either; so the chances of recovering them are slim.

They should question Joe Sheridan. He has previous in stealing Leinster medals.

All joking aside, I hope he gets them back

Shame on whoever did it. Hopefully he gets them back. He was great player no matter what your view of him was.

That tackle in the compromised rules was the worst thing I ever saw live in a stadium. The Aussie fans round me were laughing and screaming for more blood. I was a big defender of that series until that day like many others I suppose.

Had a friend go through a similar theft before and the sentimental item got randomly dropped at a Garda station because of the heat on them so hopefully it works out for Greham

That was a disgraceful tackle on him at Croke Park. Hope he gets the medals back.

Disgraceful. People with a gaa background will know what these medals look like so hopefully if they come across them they will report the scumbags who have them.

You should know that the father played in a Ulster final for Cavan (minor!). It is unfortunate that the medals were stolen, however medal counts for little! - he won the AI's as player and that cannot e stolen.

Last 20 years Leinster Championships (2000 to 2019)
2000-2005: 5 different Leinster winners
2006-20019: 2 different Leinster winners, with all but one of those one by one of the teams

GAA Financial Doping starts around the early 00's.
Ergo, can be argued that in the last 15 years there have been players from Counties robbed of a chance to get a Leinster medal due to the way the GAA have operated their funding as it wasn't natural up until that point for one County to win all but one in the same time period.

What have the kids to say about that?

Anybody who refers to the term "financial doping" as a credible point of debate, cannot be debated with.

I sincerely hope that he get them back and that the lowlife who stole them gets caught and receives full justice, not necessarily prison but community work. Maybe a week in Athboy and a further week in Kentstown. Just imagine the shame of that! All well and good to say everyone knows that Graham won so many medals and that can't be taken away but it would be nice for Graham's future generations if the medals were there for those generations to physically see. So not alone did the piece of scum rob Graham but it robbed future generations.

What a silly post absolutely nothing to do with the topic, but you have an excuse, life really is colourless in your part of the world.

Hope he gets his medals, hated him as a player, but sad to here he robbed.
